I was in yoga the other day. I was in full lotus position. My chakras were all aligned. My mind is cleared of all clatter and I'm looking out of my third eye and everything that I'm supposed to be doing. It's amazing what comes up, when you sit in that silence.

My absolutely favorite recipe for Artichoke parmesan dip... (not at all healthy, but a great comfort food! just eat in moderation...)
1 Can artichoke hearts in water,drained,chopped 1 package cream cheese (you could probably get away with reduced fat, I would discourage non fat) 1 cup mayonaise (again, reduced fat would be ok) 1 or 2 minced garlic cloves (to taste) 1 cup finely grated parmesan cheese (the stuff in the can is ok... I won't judge you!)
combine all ingredients and press down into oven safe dish. Bake until bubbly. (350-400 degree oven, just keep an eye on it. I bake it at what ever temp I have other appetizers currently baking at!)
Serve with crudite if you want to be healthy. Bread. pita chips, or pretzel chips if you don't.
My favorite recipe for seafood is to just lightly flour the fillet with seasoned flour and brown it in a little butter & olive oil. Squeeze some lemon on top and serve with homemade tartar sauce and it doesn't get much better!
Sophie, This isn't really a recipe, but you got me thinking about seafood. When I serve oysters on the half shell, I usually crush a bunch of ice, and put it in a glass casserole dish. For some reason, I'm always taking them to a dinner party. But nestling them in the ice holds them in place and they seem to taste better when they're reaaly cold like that.
